For a lot of people, this is the only concert they ever attend. And for a lot of people, it was the first concert they ever attended as a youngster.

Talking about the Bangor Symphony Orchestra and their annual Christmas program, Winter Holiday Pops Concert, is this Saturday evening, the 18th, at Collins Center for the Arts.

The show had to be done online last year, so this weekend it’ll be a wonderful welcome back performance.
